What is love? Is it something you can only truly find in one person? Is there really someone out there made just for me and what are the chances of me finding him? Why is it so hard to figure out? These are all questions that I've been asked before and now I know the answer. 'Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds or bends with the remover to remove. Oh no, it is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.' Does that make any sense to you?

Personally, I think it's saying that love is something that lasts for ever and it's something that cannot be changed no matter through what ever difficulty or obstacle, or else it's not actually love.

Or, more likely, it means that love does not seek to change another person to one's own ideals, but accepts his/her love for who they are, as they are. Personal improvement is another story, but *personality changes* are what is being discussed.

Love is not a fantasy or a feeling, it is as immortal as immaculate truth. Love is when you can say anything around the person and not feel embarrassed or weird. You never feel awkward but like you are always safe. It's like when a new born baby looks into its mother's eyes and lays all it's trust in her to take care of him and to raise him well. Understand yet?

My boyfriend once got down on his knees in the middle of one of our fights and shouted, " I am nothing special, just a common man with common thoughts and I've lead a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten but in one respect, I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who has ever lived, I have love another with all my heart and soul, and to me, that has always been enough.

It's corny but it made me cry and then I knew that he really loved me, he said it before but something in my gut just told me that he really loved me.

So no one will ever be able to explain what love is to you, and when you think that they do it right, you'll find out that their version is nothing else but a small piece of what it actually is, because there is no one on the face of the earth that can describe everything about love, there aren't enough words.

You'll find out what love is for yourself, even if you don't know what to expect, when it hits you, you'll know exactly what it is.
